Use a triple chip carbide tipped blade. The board must be held firm against the saw table to prevent chipping. Panel saws withhold downs work well.
Use a double fluted straight carbide tipped bit. Upward or downward spiral is not needed.
Use a solid backer underneath SB to prevent a blowout from the drill bit.
Hanging with an S hook use grommets in the holes.
Use 1 Shot lettering enamel for scooter board (Clean Scooter Board with 70% ethyl alcohol first).
Mix 1 Shot with one of the following:
- Penetrol & Turpentine
- 6001 reducer
- One Shot Hardener
*Scooter Board UV may react adversely to any harsh chemicals. Testing is necessary on the finish.
Loctite’s MS 9360 (800-562-8483) offers excellent adhesion. Other Loctite products should be tested.
Matthews Paints offers excellent adhesion direct on SB.
SBUV requires testing.
